I am TOTALLY in my element this month — I LOVE fall, the holidays and being able to be a “big kid” through it all, LOL! That might be the real reason I love being a “Mommy” so much – because it lets me have an excuse to regress…ha! It is totally a good thing I am an adult though, Trick-Or-Treating is more fun when you take a wine glass (yeah Halloween!)
Here is a fun and easy one — you can actually use a boxed mix (gasp!) instead for a quicker/simpler option…when I refer to Michaels, I mean Michaels craft store.
Halloween Brownie Bites
1 C unsalted butter, melted
1/2 C cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs, room temp
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using baking spray treat the baking dish.
-Mix in the ingredients as they are added.
-Pour melted butter into a bowl ad the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, eggs, flour, baking powder and salt.
-Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
-Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
2 egg whites
1 C powder sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
Green gel food coloring
-Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes. (except your food coloring)
-If icing is not stiff enough add 1/4 C powder sugar.
– Spoon the icing into a bowl.
-Add several drops of green gel food coloring in the large bowl of icing. Stir well to mix the color.
Decorating the brownie:
Tombstone, candy (Michaels)
Wilton Foodwriter, black (Michaels)
-Using the green icing cover a corner of the brownie to look like grass.
-With your Wilton Foodwriter in black, write RIP.
-Place a candy tombstone in the center of the back of the brownie.
-Add a candy pumpkin on the plot of icing grass, then rip into your Halloween Brownie Bites like a monkey on a cupcake!
